Travel Corporation, Softvoyage make the connection
The Travel Corporation has announced that Softvoyage Inc. now offers Trafalgar, Insight Vacations and Contiki on its business-to-business sites. Jeff Element, president of the Travel Corporation Canada, commented; “With a variety of ways to search for tours — duration, cities to visit, departure city, departure date and price — having the Softvoyage software will make it much more convenient for agents to book tours for Trafalgar, Insight and Contiki.” He added that “the ability to search for all of our brands in one spot makes booking more accessible and convenient, qualities we’re always trying to maintain for our agents.” Available 24/7, Softvoyage allows agents to book tours online quickly and easily via SIREV. The software, used by many agencies to save time and money and enhance their services, is being introduced by The Travel Corporation to ensure that agents are able to book the company’s trips as efficiently as possible. Dan Langevin, vice-president of sales and marketing for Softvoyage, said: “Until recently, the general consensus was that tour products still had to be sold via call centres because of their complexity. However, agents have been selling tours for years and based on discussions we’ve had with our customers, the time is now for agents to enhance their access of buying TravCorp’s products electronically. For The Travel Corporation family of brands, this is a worldwide first to sell via a third party and we are very proud to have been chosen as the company to help execute this.” Go to http://www.thetravelcorporation.com for more.
